I trust you had a pleasant visit in Cullman.
I don't think I'm getting signal out to you. Even though it's showing 'message sent'. Cloud cover probably.
On reading, I grew up as a voracious reader. I was a bad studier, but I read a book or 2 a week. In the army, it was even more. Then college post grad and professional schooling meant constant study, which stopped a lot of that. Now the work is never done, and I often don't have energy. I do listen to audio books in the car. But when work is too intense, I drive in silence - not even the radio. Too many people, too much jabber.
Like you I've turned to nonfiction when I do read. And some classics. I am going through Joseph Conrad "Youth" again, and then "Heart of Darkness", both on audio.
What bothers me about those is the reader's New England accent. Many audiobooks are East Coast / upper class, or British accents. I want a nice, resonant Midwestern voice. Not much chance for that.
